11 years gone with a million thoughts in line - All those stars that shine your name, all the tunes beyond - way across space and time, your legacy rides high and wide - so deep inside

Jerry Pure - So Sweet Divine, play one more song for all - Just make it long and never-ending, like your heart's song inside of mine ~

Listen to the river sing sweet songs, to rock my soul

Where have I known you before?
The moment I saw you I knew
I had found again the singer of a thousand songs
That haunted every dream
The painter of the colours of my mind
Reminding me of places we had been
I'm seeing clearer now - the truth unfolds
The past all drifts away
You're back again my dearest friend

You never went away.

You know my love not fade away, RIP Jerry

Thanks for the link Mon. Sometimes it's tough to celebrate the life when all you want to do is mourn the passing.


"There's no way to measure his greatness or magnitude as a person or as a player. I don't think eulogizing will do him justice. He was that great - much more than a superb musician with an uncanny ear and dexterity. He is the very spirit personified of whatever is muddy river country at its core and screams up into the spheres. He really had no equal. To me he wasn't only a musician and friend, he was more like a big brother who taught and showed me more than he'll ever know. There are a lot of spaces and advances between the Carter Family, Buddy Holly and, say, Ornette Coleman, a lot of universes, but he filled them all without being a member of any school. His playing was moody, awesome, sophisticated, hypnotic and subtle. There's no way to convey the loss. It just digs down really deep." - Bob Dylan

that was the last stanza of a poem by Neville Potter- which is on the back of Chick Correa's record album "Where have I known you before" It's one of my favorite poems >>

I think this one works. Makes me think of him...

Rupert Brooke
The Treasure
When colour goes home into the eyes,
And lights that shine are shut again
With dancing girls and sweet birds' cries
Behind the gateways of the brain;
And that no-place which gave them birth, shall close
The rainbow and the rose: --

Still may Time hold some golden space
Where I'll unpack that scented store
Of song and flower and sky and face,
And count, and touch, and turn them o'er,
Musing upon them; as a mother, who
Has watched her children all the rich day through
Sits, quiet-handed, in the fading light,
When children sleep, ere night.
